Black Sky Brewing

We congregate beneath a BLACK SKY! The purpose: to build our metal church. 490 Santa Fe is the place we have chosen. A metal site where common interests unite. Warriors of industry in an epic battle for artistic freedom and continuous education. The Black Sky mantra is education through food, libations, and music. All of our talented, craft-minded co-owners are currently working, or have worked, in the Denver craft brewing industry. Our combined vision is to invent the finest craft brews, while creating a unique environment that fosters camaraderie among our peers. To build a place where anyone can come to learn about brewing and music, in an alternative atmosphere, that promotes the heavy metal and craft brewing scenes….

Breckenridge Brewery

Back in the 1980s our founder, Richard Squire, had a dream – to ski all day and drink great beer every night. Since he lived in the snow-kissed Rocky Mountains, fulfilling the skiing portion of his dream was easy. But the great beer part – at a time when a “microbrew” was a rarity – that was another story. So Richard started brewing his own, more flavorful beers for himself and his thrill-seeking ski pals….

Pints Pub

Cheers and welcome to Pints Pub, a traditional brew pub that aspires to be your local regardless of your locale. Here at Pints, you’ll find the charm and personality of the “local”, the third place, neither home nor work. A place that serves as a crossroads for society, where artisan brewed beer freshly prepared honest food, and, as importantly, good conversation are on the bill of fare. Please be aware that despite our corner pub ambiance, Pints is nationally famed for two world class features.  We are brewers of authentic traditional British cask conditioned or “live” ales. These hand crafted, deep and complex ales are served from the hand pumps and rarely found in the U.S…

Renegade Brewing Company

Renegade is a new craft brewery located in the arts district of Denver at 925 W 9th Ave. Renegade was established by Brian and Khara O’Connell, long-time homebrewers and craft beer lovers, to bring inspired handcrafted ales to Denver. Renegade defines itself not by what the craft beer world is doing, but by what our creativity drives us to do. Our ales are made to satisfy our tastes and curiosities. Our goal is to make beer so good it’s offensive. (Does that even make sense?) Anyway, the beers will impress you. But enough talk, come down and try one. If you don’t like it, you can….never mind, you’ll like it.

Strange Craft Beer Company

Strange Craft is the realization of a dream by an out-of-work IT Tech. Suddenly unemployed, he needed a Plan B. So with his retirement savings, home brew recipes, and 20-gallon home brew equipment, he set out to open Strange. The love of brewery began with Tim’s first batch for his wedding in 1997. After his third batch boiled over and flooded the kitchen, he was moved to the back deck. A chance encounter with a CraigsList ad in December 2005 for a professional brew sculpture lit the flame that eventually became Strange Brewing Company, now Strange Craft Beer Company.

Wit’s End Brewing Company

Wit’s End Brewing Company is an impossibly small Denver brewery fueled by dreams and inspired by the limitless potential of craft beer.  Our little brewery is what is becoming a more accepted (or tolerated) classification in the craft beer world called a nanobrewery.  Does this mean we are 1000 times smaller than a microbrewery?  Sorry, our understanding was that there would be no math.  Let’s just say most people get a smirk on their face when they see how small our equipment is…but as everyone knows, it is not about the size, rather how you use it!  In a painstakingly manual process, we brew 1 barrel (31 gallon) batches of beer at a time.  This small scale allows us to be very intimate with the brewing process as well as flexible in trying out new recipes.  Our philosophy is to make beer that is balanced, enjoyable, and inspiring.  We are not too concerned about adhering to particular style guidelines.  We like to look at our “style” as “New American Brewing”, and much like our culinary counterparts that we stole part of the term from, we draw on the rich brewing history of other countries, sometimes reformulating styles, or just putting a new spin on things…Slow Beer for Fast Times–CHEERS!
